UKZN Extended Learning in collaboration with Bizfarm launched a series of free digital skills training workshops over the month of April 2017 which was powered by Google.
These workshops were aimed at individuals with a view to equip them with the necessary skills to either grow their business, career or merely boost their confidence, as well as enabling individuals to be proficient on digital platforms and cognisant of the digital space. These training sessions were absolutely free, the only requirement being that each participant had a google email account or had to create one.
UEL was proud to be a part of this great public outreach initiative, aimed primarily at empowering our youth who had not previously been exposed to such technology or its capabilities which forms a huge part of daily life in the 21st Century.
